Here’s another great example of the GMAT’s favorite SC concept: if you aren’t strict and literal with the meaning of these sentences, you’re toast. We said a lot about that in our beginners’ guide to SC, and it’s also been a theme in our QOTDs (all of which are available here).

Quote:
(A) while in Germany it is just over 33 percent

The pronoun “it” catches my eye right away. I guess it could refer to “nuclear power”, but that wouldn’t make sense: “in Germany nuclear power is just over 33 percent.” Huh? 33 percent of what?

Maybe “it” refers to “energy”? Nope: “in Germany energy is just over 33 percent.”

OK, what about “energy produced in France”? That’s even worse: “in Germany energy produced in France is just over 33 percent.”

(A) is out.

Quote:
(B) compared to Germany, which uses just over 33 percent

Germany “uses just over 33 percent”… of what? If we look at this one strictly and literally, it makes no sense, either. (B) is gone, too.

Quote:
(C) whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany

Ooh, now this is clear. “…nuclear power accounts for just over 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany.” Fair enough.

(Are most of the bakeries nuclear-powered, too? Because German bakeries are some of the best in the world. I don’t know why more people don’t talk about this. The rest of the world talks about German beer, and German engineering, and German football. But the bakeries mostly get ignored. A couple of weeks ago, we engineered an extended layover in Munich just to eat pretzels. You think I’m joking, don’t you?)

Wait, where were we? I don't see any problems with (C), so let's keep it.

Quote:
(D) whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany

This is subtle and nasty. That phrase “33 percent of the energy” doesn’t contain a pronoun, but if you’re being strict and literal with it, you’ll have to ask: what does “the energy” mean? It seems to be referring back to “the energy” that was mentioned earlier in the sentence.

But that’s the problem: “the energy” seems to refer back to “the energy produced in France.” So now the sentence says “whereas just over 33 percent of the energy {produced in France} comes from nuclear power in Germany.” And that doesn’t make sense. Tricky! Eliminate (D).

Quote:
(E) compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33 percent

This has similar problems as (A) and (B). “… where it ("energy"?) is just over 33 percent.” 33 percent of what? (E) is gone, and we’re left with (C).

Over 75 percent of the energy produced in France derives from nuclear power, while in Germany it is just over 33 percent.

A) while in Germany it is just over 33 percent
Incorrect, the use of pronoun "it" is ambigous
B) compared to Germany, which uses just over 33 percent
Incorrect, so here we are comparing 75% percent of the energy and Germany ?! i see also SV agreement issue
C) whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany
Correct, clear and concise.
D) whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany
SV agreement issue "comes"
E) compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33 percent
another faulty usage of "it" and this option is too wordy

D. whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany
E. compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33 percent


C removes the pronoun ambiguity in the original sentence and maintains the proper comparison between energey produced in France and energy produced in Germany. The comparison is paramount but your first instinct on such a question should be to remove "it" because it is ambiguous. After that B (verb tense) and D (meaning) are incorrect (as stated above).

Hope this helps!

Over 75 percent of the energy produced in France derives from nuclear power, while in Germany it is just over 33 percent.

(A) while in Germany it is just over 33 percent
"it" may refer to nuclear power or energy. No proper antecedent for the pronoun.

(B) compared to Germany, which uses just over 33 percent
We don't want to compare the statistics with a country. Invalid comparison.

(C) whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany
Again an invalid comparison between the energy and nuclear power.

(D) whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany
Correct. "75% of energy" is compared with "33% of energy" correctly.

(E) compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33 percent
"it" doesn't have a proper antecedent. "it" can't refer to the "energy from nuclear power". A pronoun should refer back to a noun and not a phrase.

I believe the answer is C

since in option D :

2nd clause is trying to say that 33% energy of the 75% of France energy comes from nuclear power in Germany.
A & E has pronoun error whereas B shows wrong comparison.

Everyone marking D here has simply gone through the grammar without even looking at the meaning.

The question is saying Out of Overall Production of energy in one country, we have some percentage met by Nuclear Power. We need to compare this fact in two countries.

D is saying Out of total energy, 33% comes from Nuclear power IN Germany. Meaning rest nuclear power comes from some other countries. COMPLETE Distortion in MEANING.

Compare 75 percent of ENERGY

(A) while in Germany IT IS (refers to? New clear power or energy?) not clear - out

(B) compared to GERMANY <---> ENERGY wrong comparison

(C) whereas NUCLEAR POWER <---> ENERGY wrong comparison

(D) 33% of ENERGY.... DRIVES <----> NUCLEAR POWER ACCOUNTS not sure about comparison but "in Germany" is position in such a way that mod. power not the whole sentence --> out

(E) 33% of ENERGY <---> ENERGY from nuclear in Germany correct

E ---> my answer

Munching whether we can do this question without drooling over Ninja's favorite nuclear-power baked pretzels, I found a way out.

Over 75 percent of the energy produced in France derives from nuclear power, while in Germany it is just over 33 percent.

(A) while in Germany it is just over 33 percent --- 'it' absurdly refers to the 75% energy

(B) Compared to Germany, which uses just over 33 percent--75% energy is being compared to Germany

(C) Whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany-- The only choice with a semblance of expediency.

(D) Whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany-- means that 33% of the energy produced in France comes from German plants

(E) Compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33 percent -- same problem of pronoun reference as in A

( GMATNinja-- I can see you haven't yet licked your lips over the just made murukkus, especially from Manapparai(not Manippuri) of South India.)

I had to google murukkus! Those look amazing. I've seen a vaguely similar treat in Guyanese and Trinidadian bakeries, but they're not quite the same -- same shape, but a very different consistency. I think I'm overdue for a tour of Manapparai... :)

OA is C

See Manhattan Blog: https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/forums/over-75-of-the-energy-produced-in-france-derives-from-t6833.html

Reason why D is wrong :

this sentence is written in a way whose meaning is at best ambiguous and at worst incorrect.

one possible meaning, if not the meaning, is that 33% of "the energy" (we don't know where this energy is, or where it's used) comes from "nuclear power in germany". i.e., the power itself is in germany (whatever that means), but "the energy" is we-don't-know-where

Ron's explanation



Over 75 percent of the energy produced in France derives from nuclear power, while in Germany it is just over 33 percent.

(A) while in Germany it is just over 33 percent - the pronoun "it" doesn't have a legitimate antecedent.
here, "it" would have to stand for something like "the percentage/proportion/fraction of energy provided by nukes". there is no such noun in the sentence, so "it" is an orphan.
(B) compared to Germany, which uses just over 33 percent - EVERYTHING here is wrong.

"compared to germany" isn't a valid comparison, because it's not parallel to anything.
france is tethered to the prepositional phrase "IN france", so it can't be compared to just "germany".

also, the sentence doesn't say that france "uses" anything.

finally, "uses" isn't used logically here. germany "uses" the nuclear energy, but it also "uses" the energy that isn't nuclear!
(C) whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany - Correct

(D) whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany - this sentence is written in a way whose meaning is at best ambiguous and at worst incorrect.

one possible meaning, if not the meaning, is that 33% of "the energy" (we don't know where this energy is, or where it's used) comes from "nuclear power in germany". i.e., the power itself is in germany (whatever that means), but "the energy" is we-don't-know-where.

(E) compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33 percent - first, false comparison: the earlier part doesn't mention "the energy from nuclear power in france", so this isn't parallel. (the earlier part mentions a percentage of ALL power in france.)

second, and more obviously, the pronoun "it" doesn't have a legitimate antecedent, for essentially the same reason as in (a).

Answer C

Could any one please help me understand the meaning of the first part???

Over 75 percent of the energy produced in France derives from nuclear power

Shouldn't it be 'Over 75 percent of the energy produced in France IS derivED from nuclear power' ?
